JL THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. Vol. 4, UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, SEP, 28, 1895. No. r. Foot Ball Prospects. "What are the' foot ball pros pects"? Write a number of our alumni to the penner of these lines. Well, let's see. Sharpe, Collier, Baird, Gregory, Moore of last year'sVarsity are back and will play this year. Steveris,and Stanley are , in College, Keanan of the '64 team also is here ;but none of the latter will play for the eleven this year. White and Wright, subs last year, are here Little, J. E. sub. with old "Towser in '94. is? 30 or more pounds bigger and should play since his health is good again. The class teamsgive Rogers,a likely canidate, who will captain the "Scr ubs this, year, Joyner, Allen, McRae, McAlister, . Haywood " and several other good fellows t)ockery is back too. Now of the new' material, Butler from Georgia, Whitaker from A. and-M. will help matters a good deal. These men Were captains or star players on their respective teams. Carson, Nicklin and Breese should do well, we will not name all of the good material. The mean hot weather is disagree able for training. t Last year we began the season with two old Varsity men. The team was creditable. There are five this year and just as good raw mat erial. North Carolina grit should tell. Will it? Guion and the others will be great ly missed.but we should feel 'that any man's place can be filled. Yale lost Heffelfihger, but Hickok came in ;Princeton lost Jesse Riggs to get 'Beef Wheeler. ' We lost Littleto get Baird, Whedbee to 'get Moore. Now these vacant places can 'and must be filled by just as good men as have hi therto occupied them . There are men here who are thor oughly capable. Come out men 'and work. All College join in and boost up the clumsy,cheer the team every day. v Gregory is a good successor to Guion and Mr. Trenchard's reputa tion as a player and coach is too high to require anything from the waiter in praise. Let all college know that the coach alone.nor a dozen coaches can turn out a team' without work, hard conscientious, faithful work.no shirking on the part of the canidates. The college as an entire united body must stand by, cheer, yes1 just force the men to victory. . . The prospects are, good. Gome everybody and help. We must I win. .. ' V. M. C. A.

Association will welcome you. ' f The Siimmer'School. The Second Session of the Uni versity " Summer School began on Tuesday 5 morning-, June 25, and closed on Friday, July 26. All the advantages of the University, save dormitories, ' were offered to those present. , There were two departments, Academic and Pedagogic, offering twenty-two courses of instruction. The Academic courses were intend ed for those desiring riper scholar ship and broader base of knowledge. It 'brought 'University education within the' power of all. Classes in Latin, Mathematics, and Modern Languages hid the same instruction as is offered in the Fall Term of the University. Applicants for en trance into the University as well as regular students after examina tion, and approval of the professors in ' charge, were allowed ' to count their work towards graduation. The department of Pedagogy taught many for "the first time that there was a scientific method in presenting knowledge to a' learning mind. There Were 140 registered stu dents, besides 19 instructors. There were about twice as many ladies present as men. A model primary class in spelling and reading by the phonic method was conducted throughout. The children in the class are not counted in registra tion. As is known, both men and wom en were here. The fact that the women showed such zeal and inter est in higher learning, coupled with the ability of those present, led the faculty of the Summer School to en quire towards the close whether the doors of the University should not be opened to women. Fifty-six members of the school came from ' the city public schools. Thirty-five from private schools. Fourteen from the University. Twelve from colleges and high schools, Ten from public schools. Five states were represented, S. C, Va., Tenn., Penn. and N. C. The profit was none the less be cause of the pleasure attending such a company. In fact, the serious ness, the earnestness, the spirit of work which prevailed was marked by the visitors. Yet such diver sions were afforded as made the work healthful. No cases of sick ness were reported. Considering the second term of the school and the number almost three times that of last year, we may well predict for it a future of usefulness and helpfulness to the cause of higher education in our State. The Centennial Commencement, Ball and Germans. The fact that such a large propor tion of those licensed topractie law in this state are prepared for their pro fession at the University is indeed gratifying to the many friends of the Law Department The rapid increase in e attendance ' also goes to attest to its superior worth and merit. .'Managed so effeciently as it is.its permanent success is assured. Since last June nothing but praises have been for the grandest and most complete success of the University, her centennial commencement, Chief among1 the elements of its success and pre-eminent among- its pleasant feat ures, stand its Ball and German. For weeks the Chief Ball Manager and his assistants had been attentively and busily engaged in preparing- for the Centennial dances, the greatest social event of U. N. C. The magnificent gymnasium lioor, . famous throughout our State, and indeed the entire South, was never in a better condition. ; Long before the Glee Club Concert on the evening1 of June seventh was over, many were the impatient a'nd radient faces turned with expectancy toward the dancing hall, where at 10: 30 sharp the First Regiment Band pealed forth the Grand March which ushered in the lovely and long-expected Senior Ball of the '95. Centennial. It was a beautiful sight to look' in upon tha't dazzling, palpitaing throng of Southern Beauty and manliness. The. unequalled beauty of Southern women is a universally admitted fact: and amid this throng were to be seen the lovliest of the lovely, the pick of that Southern Beauty. ' ; . "There was a sound of revelry by night, And Carolina's 'Varsity had gathered there Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright . The ' lamps shone o'er fair women and bave men; Three hundred hearts beat happily; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spoke again, ' And all went merry as a mariage bell." The white .and blue costumes of the young ladies betokened their sincerest interest and most intense loyalty' for our beloved 'Varsity. The large white and blue sleeves were thoroughly typ ical of the patriotism and magnitude of the occasion. In short, fans, slippers, gloves, dresses and all bore our adopt ed colors white vnd blue. The Germans of the afternoon and the evening of June, seventh, were a repetition of the Ball,' only on a much grander scale. The figures led by the Chief Ball Manager, Mr. E. C. Gregory, were especially beautiful and intricate, showing supreme skill and easy mastery of the leader's art. At three o'clock on the morning of the last German, the Ball Managers presented their rosettes as follows: Chief, E. C. Gregory, to Miss Sallie Kenan; Sub. J. C. Eller, to Miss Sadie Bitting; Sub. J? II. Andrews, to Miss Lillie Hoke; Sub. J. II. Dangerfield, to Miss Mary Conrad; Sub. V. G. Clark, to Miss Mary Calder; Sub. S. H, Hill, to Miss Luc' Young; and Sub. W. H. Woodson, to Miss Eliza beth Gibson. Just as the first rays of the morning sun appeared the last strains of the last encore of "Home Sweet Home," faded away, and to the sorrow of all the delightful German was over. One and all of the participants declared this to be the most successful and en joyed occasion ever attended; and, with congratulations to themselves on being able to be present and to the Ball Manager, and the regrets that the dances were over, they vowed to one another their intention of return ing again next commencement. May the Centennial Commencement dances of 1995 be as pleasant and scccessf ul as were those of 1895! The following is a list of the yonng ladies present: Misses Sallie Kenan, Wilmington, N.

This being our first issue for this year, our exchange list is rather small this week. The following, however, have been received: The Raleigh Press-Visitor, The Vanderbilt Hustler, The F. & M. Weekly, and The Sewanee Purple. The Hustler says that foot ball prospects are better than ever before; seven of last year's team are in train ing with an abundance of material from last year's scrub team and the freshman class. Upton of U. Pa. has been secured as coach. The Hustler says: "Our first game will be with North Carolina if the plans now made can be carried out. The Purple says that: Foot-ball at Sewanee is in a paecarious condi tion." They have not yet secured a coach and fcot-ball aflairs seem to be in a very unsettled and unsatisfactory state at present.
